Our House is the world’s first dance museum! But actually… ‘museum’ isn’t the right word.

This special place in the heart of Amsterdam is an ‘immersive experience that takes you through forty years of dance history. As soon as you step inside, you find yourself on holy ground. Our House is located in the former club iT: one of the locations where dance music gained its undying popularity in the Netherlands.

The museum makes extensive use of what you would call ‘edutainment’. With interactive installations and giving explanations playfully, the museum offers visitors an immersive experience.

The ultimate festival experience

Your visit offers the complete festival experience, all packaged into 75 minutes of unbelievable fun and ‘edutainment’. Each time slot starts with an opening show. Flashes of world-famous dance classics and beautiful visuals immediately put you in the right vibe. After the opening, the visitors fan out through the catacombs of the museum, just like at a real party. It’s easy to lose yourself in all that you can do, but make sure you get back on the dance floor in time for the spectacular 4D final show, ‘The Culture Ride’. No expense has been spared on the sound system. Goosebumps guaranteed!

Discover six chapters that tell the whole story of house music because dance is much more than just electronic music. Get to know the fundamental values of dance culture, meet the global community and look into the future. And the best part is that there is a bar in the museum. Order a beer or a delicious glass of wine at the bar and end your visit with an afterparty in the concept store.

Inside the museum

The iconic speech by house pioneer Chuck Roberts, who is also the museum’s voice, can be heard at the entrance. Then you make your way into the seductive darkness of a club with video screens all around you.

Information and fun are poured into one chunk of electronic eye candy in the history room. Electronic music stars like Kevin Saunderson, Carl Cox, and Armin van Buuren talk about the birth of House in the warehouses of Chicago and the split from techno in Detroit to the transatlantic crossing and illegal British raves, to the return of dance to America in the form of the hit-sensitive EDM. At the same time, a colourful collage of images characteristic of those periods glides past in the background: from cassette tapes and smileys to glow sticks and flyers.

Dance museum Our House
Play with visual composers, turntables, and the world’s largest analog sequencer. Immerse yourself and learn more about electronic music.

In the community area, you can request video images from fifty iconic festivals on a touchscreen in the form of a globe. Because of the illuminated touch pads, you see drum machines, which look like high-tech toys. You can dance in the silent disco while an avatar of your dancing body is conjured up on a screen. But the showstopper in the hall is the meter-long sequencer. This device combines the technology of synthesizers and drum computers, on which several visitors can compose a dance track together.

The museum’s gems

In Our House museum, you can find something about almost everything you associate with dance. Although Our House does not want to be a collection of objects in display cases, there are plenty of ‘historical’ things to admire. Devices that have earned their place behind glass have left their mark on pop music, and their sound has become as recognizable as Michael Jackson’s scream. For example, there is a Roland TR-808 drum computer, with its thin, dry sound ubiquitous in pop music, hip hop, and dance. And a Roland TB-303 Bass, the mini synth designed to recreate bass runs and which single-handedly defined the punching, crunching sound of acid.

Our House shows the history of a part of pop culture in the form of an indoor playground. It is the perfect outing for all lovers of music, especially dance music. Order your tickets now and let your journey into the world of House begin!

Amazing new museum!!

A stunning experience for a museum that is based on the holy ground of the Amsterdams dance scene. I love the interactive way they tell you the history, so as the cultural context. In addition, the interactive part is ready catchy. I’ll really recommend this activity to everyone that’s interested in EDM!
